Here comes a big fuzzy bunny

I have been obsessed with wanting to make the eggs I saw on retro mama's blog.  So I made these lovely eggs
 
Then I decided to make a basket.  I found this tutorial at maya*made's blog.  I started to make it and then decided to completely design my own basket with a felt liner. 

 I wish I had put something stiff in the interior but I like it.

  The eggs looked good in the basket but I thought something was still missing so...

I added a fuzzy bunny.  I modeled him after a peep bubbles container I have on my desk.
You might wonder at the purple theme.  I did not make any of this for me.  Sunday instead of Easter dinner at my parents house we are invited to friends.  The wife's name is Pat and she has an extreme type of ALS.  We are so happy to be able to share the holiday with her and her husband.  She can no longer eat or talk and is getting weaker.  Purple is her favorite color and I wanted to take her something she could see and touch.

Keep dreaming...Colleen

Mom, Emily, me, sister Kelly, and  participate in the ALS walk a few weeks ago in honor of Pat.

Your eggs, basket and bunny are adorable. How wonderful that you supported a friend suffereing from ALS. Friendship is so important to someone going through such adversity.
